Vic­to­ria Falls Rest Camp

This is the old mu­nic­i­pal re­sort and still one of the best places in Vic Falls. It’s pretty much in the mid­dle of town, but fenced in and there’s se­cu­rity. It’s a short walk to the shops and also to the wa­ter­fall. There’s a pool and a de­cent restau­rant.

Camp­ing is pricy. A stand with an elec­tri­cal point costs US$16 (R222) per adult and US$12 (R166) per child, plus US$9 (R125) per car. Or stay in a per­ma­nently erected dome tent with beds, from US$40 (R554) per night for two peo­ple. Twin-sleeper chalet from US$46 (R637) per night; four-sleeper chalet from US$86 (R1 191). Four-sleeper self-cater­ing house from US$161 (R2 231) per night. Prices are higher dur­ing cer­tain peak holiday times. GPS: S17.92533 E25.83775 Con­tact: 00 263 13 40509;
